Even though the skull may be fractured and the cranial nerves injured, the patient often remains fully conscious. This clinical observation led one of us (W.R.R.). with Denny-Brown (1941) to investigate experimentally the mechanism ofcerebral concussion, and we found, as might be expected… CONTINUE READING
